Dunmer Farmer

Today we went to this really cool noise/drone-and-productivity performance at Little Spot Cafe at 23rd and South Van Ness, where a guy had a whole bunch of modular synths and played while we were able to work on things and carry on conversations.

I sketched a picture of a Dunmer Farmer, as a study for a future comic I have in mind.

I brought my drawing board and paper in case I wanted to sketch people from life – to keep up the momentum from my drawing class – but instead I decided to sketch a character from imagination (as I usually end up doing). However, next weekend I will be able to attend the figure drawing session at Mission and Cesar Chavez next weekend, so I will still be able to keep the momentum going.

Last Day of Drawing Class

Today was the last day of my drawing class 🙁

Last day of my drawing class

I’ll miss looking forward to the bike ride and drawing every Saturday morning… and I’m already looking through their course catalog for another drawing class to take, because I do feel like I got a lot out of it.

I see that they’ve announced a digital drawing class that starts in September… I feel like I really need to take that one! Digital drawing software is so powerful and amazing and yet so inscrutable… and I really want to get the hang of it.

In the meantime I feel like I should also take a summer course to keep the momentum going, though.

Wizard: Know Thy Hotkeys

As you already know, I had “Mark” set to Aryon’s chambers in Tel Vos, which I’m sure Aryon wasn’t exactly thrilled about. But on top of that, I had “Recall” as one of my hotkeys, and I can’t tell you how many times I was fighting some monster and accidentally cast “Recall” whilst trying to cast “Fireball,” and ended up in the middle of Aryon’s chambers mid-combat.

And it was always something stupid like a Kagouti. Although one time I was in the middle of a huge sunken dungeon I was exploring and I had made so much progress and then – FWOOSH! I was inches away from Aryon who was saying “A warm welcome to you!” and I howled with rage and anguish right into his face.

I eventually took Recall out of my hotkeys, which gave me much relief. And I think Aryon appreciated the change, as well – no more Steen popping into his chambers at all hours, screaming and sweating with the fury of battle.
